Ask your local paint store to keep the colour sample cards when they top them up or change them over. I’m using some of these to make a patterning and matching peg activity.
This activity would follow a simple peg activity where they are just learning to squeeze and manouver the pegs into place.
Althought if you have a reluctant pegger with poor fine motor control maybe the colour matching and patterning will attract them to use this peg activity!
This is another easy to make patterning activity using different coloured smiley face stickers and a six pack of large dice.
You can encourage children to make their own patterns using these sticky dots that come in rolls from stationery shops.
